Old thread was stabbed in the back by ninjas. Emerge from the shadows and carry on here instead!Old thread for those that care: >>9177550Potential MP Nightbird leak; assuming it's real, are you interested?
Isn’t there going to be this whole convention at Hong Kong for hasbro soon or something or am I retarded?
Stop making new threads that always start with some stupid "previous thread got hit by 27 cars and is unrecognizable mush, you can't use it any more."It's the same shit every time you make one you impatient monkey.
>>9180332When is it happening again?
From OP:>"Also, let me set something straight- even if it was just me (it isn't) and it was the entire rest of /toy/ telling me to stop, I wouldn't. You know why? Because I am right and nothing anyone can tell me will convince me otherwise. I and others will keep making the threads before you want and there's NOTHING you can do to stop us. Perhaps next time I should divide the /tfg/ into different sub-threads dedicated to different lines, so we have even more TF threads for you to seethe about?"proof>>9180198Stop posting in the early threads.
>>9180341So do you want a separate SS, MP, CHUG and old TF thread? Because I can do that if you want.
>>9180342Go for it, make as many as you can.
>>9180360That was OP's threat in the last thread, yeah. Go for it though, flood every other thread off the board, maybe that'd get the attention of a bloody mod. ACCELERATE.
>>9180339Tomorrow/friday don't hope for anything.
Reminder that slowfag admitted to being mentally ill.>>9180406
>>9180415>he doesn't know that everyone already knowsWelcome to tfg!
>>9180435So I can post four replacements? I mean if you want. I was going to wait for this one to hit bump limit.
>>9180342Do we have a confirmed date? I’m thirsty for news
>>9180441Four? Spam twenty you pussy, mods won't do shit to you, you're bulletproof! I want to see EVERY thread on the board be a /tfg/! C'mon go for it you coward, if you don't it's due to your extremely diny dong.
>>9180454Nah, we only need four. Just enough to piss you off but not enough to actually cause a problem for the majority of /toy/. Just how stupid do you think I am?
>>9180462>>Just how stupid do you think I am?>admitting to spamming /toy/ in order to troll
1 shoulder is done and I hate myself + my fingers hurt a LOT.
>>9180464Nah, I'm not spamming anything. Honestly with the amount of shitflinging that goes on in these threads, a split would probably be a good idea. It upsetting you when new ones were made faster than you would like would be a bonus.
>>9180470>>Nah, I'm not spamming anything>makes five /tfg/s
>>9180474Four or five is enough. That's not spamming. What you're doing (filling the thread up with off-topic whining) is spamming.
>>9180478>>That's not spamming>four or five is enough
>>9180490I'm afraid not. Don't like it? Feel free to leave.
>thread retards too busy arguing over when an OP is made, generating replies which will lead to a thread reaching bump limit sooner, starting this whole thing all over againPottery
>>9180337>Try to inject some humour/creativity into the thread>"REEEEEEE I DON'T LIKE IT YOU'RE TOO FAST FOR ME"Can't stop, won't stop, bitchboy!
If you retards didn't give him so much attention he wouldn't keep doing this. At this point you guys have made multiple threads bitching about him and are just as bad. You deserve this.
>>9180462>Just how stupid do you think I am?Well...
>>9180544So it's a vendetta, then. I'd thought as much, you vindictive child.
>>9180544Who gives a fuck about Bionicle now lol.
>>9180607Not him. I don't even use /biog/. He's either a separate guy or he's falseflagging me. It's not even a vendetta, it's just that your impotent screeching and whining every time a new thread gets made in defiance of your autism is absolutely delicious.The irony is the first time this happened I wasn't even trying to start shit, I was just replacing the thread as we always have. But your incessant shitfits are so funny that I've kept doing it (with help from other anons) just because I can.
>>9180560If he would make new thread each time it goes to shit with idw/fuckitifnotg1/kiraposter etc. I would like OP even more.
>>9180618Your falseflagging counter shit isn't fooling anyone. Stop spamming threads you retard
>>9180623I'm not "spamming" threads. Sorry you can't keep up with the pace. But I'll never stop. Ever.
>>9180618Thoughts on IDW?
>>9180560I have never seen people make threads about this guy. I have seen him spam multiple threads though.
>>9180627You will when you die.
Thanks for the reminder to just filter /tfg/ threads from now on. There's only a handful of anons that make it worth posting in this hellhole anyway, and they don't show up to every thread. It was fun while it lasted bros.
Wheres the Victory reveal?
>>9180643There were two last week with someone crying about it. Hell, one of them is still active >>9158753
>>9180649They have two other HasLab projects, one is currently being funded. Highly doubt Star Saber or whoever is a priority over Galactus and the Rancor.
>>9180655Not interested on any of those, I want my 6 in 1 metamorph with energon superlink combinations.
>>9180683Too bad, you are probably gonna have to wait your turn. I don't want SS to be HasLab either, but I highly doubt Landcross is the HasLab.
>>9180627fuck you, you fucking faggot. Holy shit roll over and die, why can't you just let us post at our own pace
>can't find one of Aragon's legsAnd just like that I'm motivated to clean my room. I need to make more abominations like this one, from when I knew where the Powerdasher's leg was.
Done, both arms are fixed at last.

Spam thread was stabbed in the back by ninjas. Emerge from the shadows and carry on here instead! >>9177550
>>9180725You can fag, you could also just stick to an older thread, but the majority dont give a fuck and won't.I hope he never stops, and at this point i hope you bitch forever.
Girls, stop bickering and post/talk about toys. It's too early to derail a thread.
>>9180853Post it in the real thread, this one's dead.
>>9180853Lick my fujina
What's your favorite "izer" combo?
Got a makeshift group of junkions here.
How many of you are going to double dip Jetfire?
>>9181084Im a sucker for the shattered glass deco, so +1
RED "Reformatting Megatron"
>>9181196This deco really highlights the gummy plastic. It looks like grape candy.
This is the one you should have posted.
>>9181222That scale is such a non factor is so annoying. If ever there was a RED Dinobot or Megatron it just wouldn't look right at the same height as Primal. No mace is also a pretty big wtf, but that he has his shoulder cannons and wrist guns are a huge plus to me. I think he'll be my first RED.
>>9181222I saw it earlier on twitter for a quick moment but I thought it was the Netflix version of the Kingdom release
>>9181222>>9181226Only upside this one has over the Kingdom release is the chest and swords combining, otherwise whats the point?
>the horn/antenna are bent even in promo photosjesus christ
>>9181222What’s up with that weird looking Maximal symbol? Have they ever used that version for other things before?
>>9181234It's an action figure. That's about it. I'm also not sure how good its ankle range will be. Otherwise the articulation should be better, one would hope.
>>9181245Didn't notice that. Maybe for the movie?>>9181241At this point we should all be used to a Hasbro product shot for a real product and not a render having something wrong with them, whether that's being mistransformed or something bent up. Either way, warm water or hot air should do the trick so that's a non-issue.
>>9181226>>9181222>>9181207Lenny was a mistake Jesus Christ
>>9181246>Otherwise the articulation should be betterExcept it isn't, messing with my Primal right now.the basic points are the same, shoulder, bicep,elbow, wrists for arms, but Kingdom has fingers, sure as one thing but fingers, but RED goes for handsOnly notable thing there is RED's arm bend is a cleaner because they added a floating elbow cap thing, so he doesn't get his famous no elbow elbow.Legs are basically the same from what I can see, waist is obviously the same.Feet wise he doesn't seem different from the Kingdom version at all, infact, he might miss the toejoint Kingdom has.So really they're basically the same articulationwise.
>>9181252Thankfully he's gone now.
Awww look at them, they look so cute together, nothing could ever go wrong
>>9181267Is he? Since when? It'd be nice if RED was improved upon rather than just dismissed. >>9181256Ya, just about. Does the Kingdom one have double elbows and knees? I assume that'd be just about the only thing.
>>9181245They started using a hybrid Autobot-Maximal symbol for Kingdom.
>>9181270Lenny got moved to GI Joe, Mark is now in charge of all TFs
>>9181196>>9181241Is this all we’re getting revealed this month?
>>9181222>>9181226This is literally just the same as the Kingdom one except it can't transform though? The Kingdom one has all the same features, including the arm and shoulder cannons. And why would the supposedly screen accurate RED one need swords, which he never used in the show?These are as much as Deluxes so I don't see why anyone wouldn't just buy the Kingdom one. The Cheetors are already shelfwarming everywhere and I can't see this one doing any better.
>>9181283RED was Lenny's pet project
>>9181290This reveal was from Walmart's little event. I assume there will be more for SDCC proper.
>>9181276That actualy looks pretty cool. Hope it's from the movie.
>>9180465How'd you pry them out? The method I've seen suggested is using a tool to heat the rivet then using a magnet to lift the rivet out
What to choose>Slag - looks cool but don't care about others than Grimlock>Grindor - I already have Blackout but kinda want Ravage and loved him in game.>spare money for Star Saber
>>9181301He used the swords a number of times anon
>>9180209who actually buys nightbird? its such a dull mess of grey. its like the la croix of evil version/nemesis colorways
https://twitter.com/alwaysbumping/status/1417939659359879168?s=19The sculptor for RED Primal posted the sculpt. It's not his fault that this line is shit so be nice but you can probably ask him some questions
>>9181270>Does the Kingdom one have double elbows and knees?with how his elbow works it's a single join that gets full range of motion.Knees go to like 90 degrees, but can go deeper if you're willing to untab some things.Here's a quick shoddy photo
>>9181283>Lenny got moved to GI Joe>was barely in charge of Transformers>all the figures and lines he was the head dude for were all highly dubious in quality and had people very divided
>>9181353As an Earth native, Nightbird is important. Shows that even something not from Cybertron can eventually become a Transformer.
>>9181399gonna say, not a bad sculpt at all. kist weird that like Cheetor it's not the cartoon model, which is the point of RED, cartoon accurate action figures.That said, Primal is closer than cheetor, it's just the fur that really stands out.
>>9181405He was apparently only head for a little bit and Warden's last move was putting him on GI Joe. Considering his primary job has been shitty roleplay toys over on a dead brand and a few highly divisive Transformers, we may have dodged a bullet.
>>9181416I don't think the problem with RED has ever been the sculpts. This is a fine Primal in a vacuum but we literally have a version of the same character on shelves right now that looks exactly the same except it can transform.
>>9181305When’s that? I swear to god, I am literally gagging for new info
>>9181425Yeah, I could understand if they released him after Kingdom because even though Primal will be easy to find it still makes sense.This is just gonna lead to massive confusion at Walmart, considering there is the Regular, Netflix and RED figure out at once, probably next to each other.
This little fucker is much more durable than I gave him credit for. I accidentally dropped a China plate on him when I tripped, plate shatters into 2, sends him 3 feet across the room and he’s fine
>>9181416The sculpts in general have been great. I just wonder how much of an audience the line has. I feel like kids just want Transformers to be Transformers and adults can get the myriad merch out there (figures/statues and otherwise) if they're Transformers fans that don't care about the toylines that much anymore.
>>9181418That must really fucking sting, you're doing such a shit job as head of Hasbros flagship action figure line you get booted by the previous one.Also if he's gone I don't see RED continuing after like one more wave, unless it somehow sells gangbusters, which I doubt.
>>9181443It's solid, yeah. I do wish it were a touch bigger given some of the engineering, but more for ease-of-use than fragility.
>>9181418The fuck are you talking about? Warden had already left before Lenny was in charge.Warden left, Lenny got Warden's job, finished up the second half of Kingdom and kickstarted Legacy, left for GI Joe, and now Mark is the new manager. He was basically a minor transitional manager.
>>9181418>a few highly divisive Transformers,Which?
>>9181451Ignore him, there is an autist in these threads that keeps posting corporate fanfiction to fuel shitposting.
>>9181454Kingdom Scorponok and Rhinox
>>9181454Kingdom Rhinox, Scorponok and I think Waspinator.Unlike all the previous Maximal figures which people pretty universally loved people either really don't like them, or are mostly lukewarm on them.Rhinox in particular made the aftermarket price for the T30 version skyrocket.
>>9181443the mental image of him flying across the room amuses me, because I just imagine him saying something stupid like "This is way better than lookout mountain"Also holy shit, not even any paint damage? no scratches?
>>9181460>which people pretty universally lovedI dunno, man. Cheetor's reception was always lukewarm it seemed to me and I'm not sure I've seen anyone defend Dinobot's raptor mode. I personally have found just about all of the BW stuff underwhelming so far, for one reason or another. Rhinox might be the worst but Scorponok seems par for the course.
>>9181474well I am a bit biased because I like Cheetor, and people mostly dislike Dinobot's raptor eyes and hands, the rest of the figure most fucking love.Point is even if people had issues they were minor, Rhinox and Scorponok are not only a visible step down in quality, but they just feel like they had different people working on them.Like compare Airrazor and those two, or even Dinobot or Primal, it just looks worse.
>>9181482>Aside from the fact the raptor looks awful, people love it!Yeah, well.>minorWe have different assessments of "minor," clearly.
>thread so dead it has to talk about REDGo go go
>>91814902 new RED figures got new images today, were talked about briefly, and then they're back to talking about regular Transformers, and you still post this shit? Fuck off you dumb anon.
>>9181486my point is even if figures had issues people overall liked them.Very few people seem to actually like Rhinox and some are just picking him up for the sake of having a Rhinox, not because he's good.And people just constantly rag on Scorponok because both his modes are boxy and kinda shit.Dinobots Raptor mode may not be great but it's still decent and his robot mode more than makes up for it.
>>9181418At least Lenny was cute
>>9181405What did Lenny do before Transformers?
>>9181399The hair looks so much better than Kingdom: >>9181397Its a lot sharper and shit like old BW toys. They shouldve got this guy on Kingdom. Unless Kingdoms sculpts hair was good too and it just got fucked up.
>Pulse exclusives all just increased by 6%
>>9181536I canceled the entire SG line and thst volcano dinosaur. No regrets. Fuck jews.
>>9181540Wait, did they increase pre-orders as well?
>>9181530He worked at a nuclear power plant.
>>9180961>>Scout class HubcapI see you're a gentleman of distinction and class as well.
>>9181548They haven't so far
>>9181283>>9181451What Mark are we talking about here? Mark Weber? Or a different Mark?
>swords can only be combined one way>it's not even the best waykind of hate it tee vee desu yo
>>9181447>That must really fucking sting, you're doing such a shit job as head of Hasbros flagship action figure line you get booted by the previous one.He has done designs now and then for Transformers but the list we have of things he's done were all not very good. He's been on GI Joe doing kiddy roleplay toys for the movie. The weird thing was he was announced to be taking over Transformers multiple times - he even did the big sendoff of Warden in a passing-of-the-torch stream, and only now do we hear that he's quietly being replaced. People are saying he led for the first part of next years line but I really don't buy it, since that means the reigns would have been passed last year when Warden was winding down Kingdom, and they waited until they announced him taking over to replace him. Unless next year's product is a huge dumpster fire and Hasbro is scrambling to shuffle him off the line to pick up the pieces before release.
Finally found a Thrilling 30 Primal for less than $70, has no guns but I figure those third party replacements could work, got prepared to deal with the useless loose knees when it showed up.It showed up today, and the knees aren't useless at all. They hold up perfectly fine. What gives?
>>9181578Mark Maher, the guy with the mustache/beard who always seems like he's on drugs
>>9181628>People are saying he led for the first part of next years line but I really don't buy it, since that means the reigns would have been passed last year when Warden was winding down Kingdom, and they waited until they announced him taking over to replace him. Unless next year's product is a huge dumpster fire and Hasbro is scrambling to shuffle him off the line to pick up the pieces before release.They typically have the first half of year planned out and designed but the later stages are still being worked out. At this point all of next year is locked in and we will start to see listings leaked out in the fall. Given the heavy presence of Prime characters (Lenny’s first TF series) I’d say he was probably there for most of the planning but mark maybe moving things around or switching up the later half of the year. That being said I don’t thing Lenny was moved because his work on TF has been a dumpster fire. He’s had his attention split between TF and GI joe, and Joe really need the attention right now.
>>9181645This is the guy in charge now?Lol
>>9181645>>9181681Wait, him? Isn't he the guy who always sounds like he's trying way too hard to appear excited in the product reveal livestreams? Or am I thinking of someone else?
>>9181347This is the best method, the plastic tools wont damage the figure. Didn't have one so I improvised and use a hard plastic spatula handle and cut the loop end open. Pu some tape over the hole so the pine doesnt fly off when it pops.
>>9181664>He’s had his attention split between TF and GI joe, and Joe really need the attention right now.It's not like Joe needs any fresh new products. It's just a legacy line and its fanbase is mostly dead
>>9181467Not that I can tell of, no. Granted, he was in car mode so it’s likely that the whole thing took the impact more than just a single peice so it ended up fine but still, it was both terrifying and hilarious
>>9181443both clips on the forearms meant to connect the pipes in car mode have snapped on mine. Transforming his legs from car mode to robot mode is just begging for something to break.
>>9181681I thought that was lenny this whole time
>>9181768It seems sturdy to me, but either way I think the figure is too small for everything it has going on. It's a cool figure but I have some mixed feelings on it.Rodimus on the other hand is nothing but mixed feelings. I almost feel monkey's paw'd.
>>9181269This gives me step-mom step-son vibes.
>>9181739Just as dead as tf, why are we still getting g1?
>>9181908Because its selling. Doesn't that seem obvious?Mind you, i do want to see some other new stuff.
>>9181207>>9181200>>9181196Even if movie inaccurate I wish he was half Galvatron and half Megatron. Might make RED worth a dollar at least
>>9181443If we are talking on ss86 then yeah its a nice figure, kinda light and thin feeling and a bit small for my tastes but its a good figure. On the fence about the new one since its so damn expensive.nwp08
>>9181913You will be seeing new stuff soon enough.
>>9181768I can see those breaking.The car mode is a bit of a mess, like everything that needs to connect together is positioned half a millimeter off. Main culprit is the yellow joint on the roof of the car, it's pinned in a way that makes the red piece with the spoiler not sit perfectly flush when compared to the windscreen piece. I love the figure and the robot mode is perfect, but measurements are just a bit out of wack but throws everything off in vehicle mode.>>9181858>Rodimus on the other hand is nothing but mixed feelings. I almost feel monkey's paw'd.What's wrong with it? Still don't own it but had one ordered.
>>9181084Nope, got sg ss on preorder but my big splashes are scoroponok and black zarak. I honestly still havent opened mine yet and ive had it since January. If i get this new job then yeah ill get sg jetfire.
>>9180622Id like op more if kreon came back. I cant believe the most annoying reply style but good content got chased off.
>>9180454Cant neca hate threads go about 16 a day.
>>9181959>What's wrong with it?To be clear, I don't own it either, so there are some things I can't remark on. And I don't think anything too egregious is wrong with it. But it's a lot of small (or small-ish) things that add up and make me underwhelmed.Despite having an example in SS86 Hot Rod itself (which Rodimus does borrow from) we still somehow have a Rodimus with both a somewhat awkward independent car and an awkward car+trailer. It's not like the transformation is anything wild, or like it has to juggle a disruptive premise like the POTP one does. Some of the accessories are nice to have and it's nice that the trailer is of a better stock than what we've had lately for Optimus, but for an $80 figure in a near-literal class of its own there are some compromises I don't know were necessary. It hits with more swings than it misses, but it was a much closer ballgame than I think it should've been, so to speak. YMMV.
>>9181084Wanted to, but I'm already getting the Ark, Black Zarak, and plus Victory Saber. A real shame, I like the new colors.
>>9181956I can't wait to be disappointed.
>>9180209What was takara thinking?
>>9182016Japan fucking loves her
>>9182030>robot ninja waifuJaps are so predictable.
>>9181956Only expectations are that it'll be at least weird and different with how much shit is going on. The giant clusterfuck of characters will hopefully make for an interesting toyline
>>9182016Odds of Nightbird hitting the same discount prices as Arcee?
>>9180961Very nice. I can't wait to get wreckgar to have hot rod ride him.
If you could make your own Toyline and show, what would do?
>>9182078Entirely new cast of characters (and 0 name reuses) with interesting rarely/never used vehicle modes.Animated in japan.
>>9182089Wanna move away from standard size and price ranges too?
>>9182078Show I don't really know, probably focus on a small inexperienced group exploring space with a more expansive cast of side characters. And also make the bad guys more intimidating, I liked how Animated did it by having the decepticons be so much more powerful than the Autobots. It was a big deal when they actually showed up, So I would probably just copy that.Toyline would be a very big focus. Too many Transformers series feel like the designers just drew a cool robot without actually thinking about how it would work as a toy, So I'd have the character designers and toy designers work really closely together, or even design characters as toys first and just adapting them into the character. The toys would have a big focus on interesting transformations, altmodes, and articulation, at least at the same level as current stuff.A few gimmicks might appear, like headmasters or minicons, but no one gimmick should comprise the entire toyline. I'd like to have maybe one or two nonstandard combiners, three-member, or maybe even SYMMETRICAL DOCKING because I'm fucking tired of scramble city geewunn guys and partsforming combiners.
>>9182089This is the only correct answer to >>9182078
>>9180209Why did takara choose to make their first masterpiece starscream look like this?
>>9182142I actually like the colorscheme.
>>9182142Because Japan has never understood Transformers.
>>9182142Because it was designed by Shoji Kawamori who made the remarkably based decision to forgo toonshit accuracy. Get filtered.
>>9182099Didn't think that far, but for scale that'd probably be good.
>>9182150>who made the remarkably based decision to forgo toonshit accuracyAnd the end result is a mess with a torso that doesn't stay together, balance issues due to shitty feet, and ugly kibble. I know he's a respectable designer andhe also worked on the original diaclone line, but just let the guy make cool valkyries from scratch because letting him trying to tackle an already stablished design was a mistake.
>>9182142"Real-type" colors. And the Alternator line being so popular and considered basically equivalent.
>>9181536>6%I'll never be able to recover financially
>>9182188I'd love to see Kawamori make Starscream from scratch without being beholden to an existing design. Granted I wish he'd do it like 90's Kawamori and not modern Kawamori.
>>9182200I mean at this point just have the Collaboration engineers pull a Maverick again, but instead of aping the VF-1 they do the YF-19>>9181681>Burger Thew
>>9181956As long as the toys are cool, it'll be enough for me.
>no money>Still mad that Walmart's got nothing good on the shelvesWho can relate?
>>9182209>I mean at this point just have the Collaboration engineers pull a Maverick again, but instead of aping the VF-1 they do the YF-19And how well did that turn out?
>>9181977He posts all the time, not all of his posts are the annoying respond to everyone while studdering bit.You can tell its him because he'll let slip he wants to buy toys because hes lonely and other such stuff.
>>9180447Yo is that G2 devastator Sweet
>>9182221I can relate.
>>9182209Bandai and Arcadia already treat the YF-19 like an engineering pissing contest, I doubt they'd let HasTak try their hand at it>>9182222If you're talking about the "Apeface soap plastic" then absolutely garbage; if it was bigger it wouldn't need to be made out of that stuff
>>9182078Season 1 would be about the autobots trying to defeat the decepticon's newest weapon, an infinite army of seeker clone with full power. The main cast is a team of autobots trying to find the 'con being cloned, so they can stop the army, this cast is comprised of Deepdive (design is essentially a G1 version of the RTS figure) the leader, Rhinox, Electro, Bumblebee, Hotrod, Redalert, and a transformer who turns into an AE-86 whos name I haven't decided yet. The setting is spread across earth and the moon. The decepticon who's been cloned is secretly a G2 styled Blackout. The first season ends with the autobot team killing Blackout, but also losing Deepdive. Season 2 follows the same team trying to keep hold of a powerful weapon, the nemesis' transformation cog. Deepdive "comes back" with a new body, but is secretly Blackout with a new body (a bit like a G1 version of the Bayverse design but different), trying to steal the transformation cog. The setting is in the desert of Nevada. The new villain team with the same goal as Blackout are comprised of Motormaster, Dragstrip, Deadend, Wildrider, Breakdown, Pyke (who turns into a Thrust SCC, the boosters become the shoulders, he's skinny so his limbs fold away quite simply, the front of his altmode becomes a lance, and he has a knight aesthetic), and a team of two who turn into a motor-bike with a sidecar. Another villain would Straxus, who is the main villain of a season wide B-plot on Cybertron following the wreckers and blaster with his tapes. Season 2 would end with Blackout now being VERY dead, but with an autobot reprogrammed seeker stealing the cog and selling it to swindle. Season 3 now has a much bigger cast with Optimus Prime, trying to turn autobot city into Metroplex, while the decepticons with Megatron, making additions to the nemesis, so it can transform to Trypticon. Season 3 ends with Trypticon and Metroplex fighting, and Optimus Prime and Megatron dying... for now. That's all I'm doing tonight.
>>9182221My Walmart doesn’t stock anything Above Deluxe Class for Kingdom and have had the same two SS figures being BB Starscream and 86 Hot Rod and I already have Hot RodI could get Starscream but I personally want things like Thrust or Thunder CrackerHell they don’t even stock RED
>>9182222I mean, I liked it, but not "repaint it as a Cyberjet" liked it>>9182235>Bandai and Arcadia already treat the YF-19 like an engineering pissing contest, I doubt they'd let HasTak try their hand at itFair enough
>>9182243To add to my post, sorry for the cringe.
I dont get the love for this guy.
>>9182253What do you not get?
>>9182253>not getting the love for the Iron Giant
>>9181977I still post now and then, just not that many interesting posts to respond to sometimes, other than I guess the following reply. Not that much to buy or think about. Last thread had an anon really excited about Sixshot, I hope he posts lots of photos once he gets him.https://i.imgur.com/rz3DrsW.jpg>>9182228S-sorry that your threads are too insufferable for people to enjoy posting in.>>9181443>>9181467this really cute image, I'm glad Hot Rod's alright>>9182221>things are on shelves when I have no money>nothing's ever in stock when I have money and stores are legally permitted to be openTempted to go out on a limb and buy something I might not like. Watching a review for Raconite since I want to give him a chance.>>9182253He was an important character in a very old but beloved animated movie about a boy growing up and making a friend. I only have the figure that came with the Iron Giant VHS but I have no idea who the purple guy is.>>9182258Heh
>>9182078Season 1 is the Autobots and Decepticons going to earthAnd the toy line starts with the basic characters you’d need or wantBut maybe make the Seekers smaller flying vehicles so then you can sell a lot of recolors for army buildingSeason 2 is more Cybertron based and space related in generalWith some characters from 86 and would introduce some characters that will have influence in the next seasonLike how animated had team CHAAR with Cyclonus and some Beast wars charactersSeason 3 involves Time Travel and has Beast Wars Characters and characters like Galvatron show up from the futureBut they eventually go to the pastSomeone from the future does and then creates a worm hole like in the old Marvel comics and then they have to get rid of Galvatron and Cybertron returns to relative peaceI’m basically just copying TFA for the story because that’s my favorite version of Transformers but the toy line would be more like the WFC trilogy lineI personally think these are the best figures so far
>>9182142They had a good design at first but decided they needed designer name recognition to sell obscure nobody character Starscream, so they got a man with hams for hands to fuck it all up.
>>9182276More like meat cleavers for fingers because it got butchered
>>9182279Hahahahakekekekjajajaj my sides Anon, they have left my body. Give them back now or else white boi.
>>9180618At this point if the mods don't care about having half a dozen transformers threads up at once then fuck it. Flood the whole board, fuck everybody else.You are and always will be a colossal faggot, so long as you remain OP.
>>9182150>>9182188>>9182191>>9182276why bother letting him have so much control?
>>9182292Maybe when you give the Valkyries their meat back, Kawamori
>>9181644I'm guessing that's not your photo as that one has the gunsAlso I have no idea: Guess you just got lucky or something
>>9182276I like how chunky that looks. The jets on the side of his head could stand to be a little wider, but other than that, he looks great.
>>9182324It's notable that while MP11 restores some of the original concepts (like the Null Rays not needing to be removed between modes), it is not just the MP03 prototype.
>>9182253Most friends I have who are into Transformers actually hate Galvatron. I'm ambivalent, but the season 3 version was horrible.
>>9182342Why do they hate him?
>>9182260I've never made any thread.Go make your toys hug, faggot, if your mother lets you that is.
>>9182343For being an incoherant insane lunatic as opposed to the coherant but overconfident Galvatron, on top of Frank Welker's eardrum-destroying delivery.
Wow, it's never been this bad before.
>>9182359So do your friends just hate season 3 Galvatron?
>>9182363More than I do anyway. Season 3 is just so bad I tend to regard it with disinterest more than anything.
>>9182362Mine too. I also got a Hasbro Pulse Email saying August Deliveries are pushed back to October now.
>>9182366Do your friends like TFTM Galvatron?
>>9182366Season 3 Decepticons were a mistake. They were demoted from being the main villain force to a crazy guy, his tard rangler/punching bag, and mass produced punching bags. Doesn't help the other Decepticons were rare appearances.
>>9182370One of them does because they're a Star Trek fanatic, the others are more "eh" on him.
Not my photo>>9182353>I've never made any thread.Ever? Well, I hope you one day get the chance. Apparently it's very fun, almost addictive.>Go make your toys hugI hope I'll get the chance too, thank you for the fun idea on what poses to try out.>>9182366Give it a revisit if you haven't in a while. I thought S3 to be dark, drab, and weak, but I happened to end up streaming some rando eps for friends and they were all bangers. It's not as bright or necessarily memorable as some S1/S2 episodes, but there's some underrated moments. The Big Broadcast of 2006 has uh, not-as-mentioned but still insane scenes for Galvatron.
>>9182376I rewatched a couple episodes back in February, I mostly remember things I didn't like about it, like Rodimus' disinterest in everything, Grimlock's flanderization, Daniel being too involved in everything and Galvatron's lunacy. All that's without the garbage quality animation too.I stopped before the singing one, I couldn't sit through that one again.
>>9182342Nimoy was great, shame he never got to reprise his role as the Mad Tyrant. It would’ve been a dream come true to see a Welker Megatron fight a Nimoy Galvatron on the big screen before the two schizos clue in and decide to kill everyone else then resume their melee.
>>9182359>For being an incoherant insane lunaticBut that's the best part, and webworld was pure gold. Anyone who watches G1 without embracing the campiness is doing it wrong.
>>9182394Webworld is one of those episodes you want to be better than it actually is. It's fun to see the "therapy" but that's all of 7 minutes.
>>9182400I dunno, him making a fucking gun in arts and crafts is gold.
>>9182410Yes, but that's a very small part of the episode.
>>9182400>Webworld is one of those episodes you want to be better than it actually is. It's fun to see the "therapy" but that's all of 7 minutes.Like every single G1 episode considered memorable.
>>9182388>Rodimus' disinterest in everything>wasn't rooting for him all the time, and finding his growth and sometimes reluctance about the Burden interestingOk, let's agree to disagree on the first part.>flanderizationHe's a bit good-natured since the movies, yeah, albeit a bit like a baby. But maybe consider that to be just his relative maturity as a person as well as friendship/fondness with Rod? Hot Rod called him a bozo and literally tard-wrangled him with a lasso in the movie I think, and was literally BEGGING Rodimus to wake up in the 5-parter when he was half-dead. So while Grimlock was made in the middle of Optimus' tenure, maybe Hot Rod sort of proved himself to Grimlock... who also turned into a baby. Just trying to give positive but plausible spins on things.>Daniel being too involved in everythingI still haven't watched all of season 3, so aside from him and Wheelie destroying an Autobot mausoleum, thought the humans were generally helpful? Watching some S2 eps I noticed how Spike was actually pretty helpful most of the time.>Galvatron's lunacyCan't help you there.>the singing oneI haven't watched that one but I'm really thankful. Somehow the most campy episodes were often in season 3?>>9182394>likes WebworldWatch at least like, half of the Broadcast of 2006 episode. Galvatron's hardly present for most of the episode but just- here.>Junkions attacked Autobots and Decepticons for some reasonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzBJKun8lzU&t=4m>Cyclonus investigates nonetheless, and finds something odd and comes back to report - it's probably been maybe half a day or morehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m00MmZswxU&t=1m>>>
>>9182428It's scale of things.Episodes like Prime Target and A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court manage to stretch the fun out through a whole episode, whereas the fun in Webworld is soley in the middle.
>>9182390I think I remember reading somewhere that Nimoy WANTED to return to Transformers for the longest time, but nobody asked until DOTM, not sure if I imagined that or not.
>>9182479>His entire car mode shell is clear plasticHasbro, this gang-molding cheaping out shit is getting fucking ridiculous
>>9182479>masterpiece>can't even cast windows in separate pieceslmao
>>9182479This looks more like a CHUG figure than an MP.
>>9182487That's the masterpiece prototype, retard.
>>9182479Prototype colors are fascinating.
>>9182494It looks, and functions more like an alternator than a CHUG figure.
>>9182492MP, wat? This is the Kingdom Deluxe.
>>9181226Literally Kingdom Primal without the altmode
>>9182504One, the deluxe is in Legacy, and two, that's MP-53, you mongoloid.
>>9182496>>9182504D'oh, yeah, it's the Masterpiece, my bad
>>9182496Whoops, that's on me for being sleepy lol
>>9182504>the same slots in the front wheelsohnononono Skidsbros....
>>9182501Never owned any Alternators figures so I'm not suited to make that kind of call, but I'll take your word for it.
>>9182479At this point, someone should sell solid plastic replacement parts for these clear plastic crap.The toys have good designs but these clear plastic bs makes everything fragile.
>>9182479>80% of the car exterior is clear plasticThis thing is gonna make Hound look like a brick shithouse
>>9182540Shake it down shake it down now.
>>9182438>Watch at least like, half of the Broadcast of 2006 episode. Galvatron's hardly present for most of the episode but just- here.Anon, I watched the whole G1 show two times. I don't need to see anything else to know that I like Galvatron's lunacy. It's not a show that can be taken seriously, you just turn your brain off and enjoy the ride.
>>9182540but anon, Skids was TOTALLY going to be the best MP figure of all and a return to greatness because hate cartoon!
>>9182540>tfw no MP Hound who turns into the Washington Monument>>9182549Oop.. got sort of confused, but glad you remember it and remember it fondly!
I just want another dinobot, just announce any of them. I didn't think we'd only Slag and Grimlock for the entire year.
>>9182549You don't understand. It is a dramatic science fiction epic about theology vs rule of the strong, the psychological effects of warfare and living for millions of years, and what it means for something to be alive.
>>9182504>"masterpiece" is so bad that anons confuse new releases with generations releasesAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NO NO NO NOLOOK AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD
>>9182553It kind of feels like tooners have infiltrated Takara and are sabotaging Skids to trick the higher-ups to go back into making Masterpiece disgustingly cartoon-accurate.
>>9182479i wanna see how MPfaggots defend this holy shit my sides
>>9182579Most MPfaggots only buy the super-cartoon-accurate stuff.
>>9182462I remember reading that Nimoy was ashamed/embarrassed back in the day (he needed money) but I want to say it was Bay or the widespread attention the franchise gained after TF1 that changed his mind but made him want to return. Originally considered for the Fallen actually, even though the screen time was limited Tony Todd was fantastic and I couldn’t imagine anyone else voicing the Fallen.
>hastak post-2017 clear plastic that cracks if you look at it funny>vietnam mp factories that still can't get the plastic formulas right and cake on the paint like a wargaming newbie>sheer refusal to separate the windows from the side panels and roof, and having a slide joint inside the doors>also the baffling decision to use a clear piece of plastic as the engine to secure the front fenders together, also made in clear plastic, with more clear plastic for the protruding mirrorsSkids and Diaclone-Crosscut are gonna destroy themselves faster than a "good" Hound copy, and there'll be so many screenshots of Facebook hamhands pissing and moaning about the their Honda fabergé eggs
>>9182645>Reboost also comes with a clear plastic Spike/Diaclone driverIt was doomed from the start
>>9182645Enjoy your budget Masterpiece figure, cheap round-eyes
>G1 toy got shortpacked>had his folding honda bike stolen because no drivers in G1>did nothing in the cartoon>died for no reason in marvel comics>died of guilt in IDW and was surgically removed from another character's memories, and afterwards forgotten by the writers anyways>T30 had assembly issues, and balance issues if assembled correctly>MP is already a ticking timebomb at the injection-molded prototype phaseSorry, all five Skids fans, you don't deserve this
>>9182666Maybe another Skids has a better...Oh.
>>9182666Don't forget enemy of the state
>>9182479Fucking Takara. Not like Hasbro is any better...how the mighty have fallen.
>>9182691It's been downhill since 2017 with the "brand-unification", anon
>>9182696Though with PF and TTGS, that may be coming to an end.
>>9182696>2017It's been downhill much longer than that.
>>9182666At least Galaxy Force Skids/Cybertron Clocker got pipes because of extra budget
>>9182701>PF>TTGSSorry, I'm retarded, what the fuck do those stand for?
>>9182666>Turns into a fucking box on wheels
>>9182704>PFPremium Finish>TTGSTakara Tomy Generations Select (i.e. Volcanicus and Abominus sets)Both sublines are still being brought over currently, unless they decide to quit after TTGS Merc Soundblaster PF Siege Megs and SS Megs
>>9182685>>9182666Let's see if next years deluxe is also terrible.
>>9182713Oh, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I don't see what the big deal is about the new Takara "lines". Lipstick on a pig doesn't change the fact that it's a pig, ya know? The BB Prime looks nice, but not for that price. Guess it doesn't matter since the Studio version is around that much on the aftermarket.
>>9182723The point I was trying to make is that the brand unification may soon be coming to an end.
>>9182727I mean after the nth version of the Siege/Earthrise Megatron design I can see Hasbro stomping on the brakes
>>9182736It's ironic they still haven't made a miner Megatron retool.
>>9180465I just found a fixed one at retail and swapped/returned mine. Fuck Hasbro.
>>9182727Yes, but Takara was going downhill before that. I don't think brand unification or deunification matters at this point. The products are getting shittier and the prices are up across the board.
>>9182738Them making a jet out of a tank before using that head again was hilarious and depressing at the same time, would have loved to get caution stripes Megatron to pair with Impactor
>>9182666>>9182685I've half a mind to buy his figure just to give him some love. He's not my fave and I'm currently indifferent about both his modes (subject to change), but no one deserves this. I don't think he died in Marvel, but in UK he DID get stuck in limbo for two years, trapped in some unseen nightmare, while Galvatron ran amok (and about) all the while.Hope he gets more love, for people who own him as well as for people who write/draw him. Fuck. I might go out of my way to love him if his figure comes out.
>>9182741Articulation and accuracy are their peak, Beast Wars is finally getting recognition, what would've become convention exclusives are in GS, and you think the brand is getting shittier?
>>9182758It is. Feel free to disagree.
>>9182766If you have been a fan for longer than 2 minutes, you know the complaints. They are omnipresent. Also, I don't have the time or energy to outline all of them for your convenience. It's shit. You don't think it's shit. You won't change my mind, and I won't change yours. Simple as.
>>9182771I understand, Size, price, distribution, QC, clear plastic, exclusives, too much G1, and many more.
>>9182771Nah. Been a fan for decades, nothing on shelves right now is worse than FoC-era Generations, DOTM-era movie toys and more. POTP is as bad as things got.
>>9182820>tfw RTS and HFTD are "awful"
>>9182820Never forget when hasbro tried selling literal upscaled KOs of legends figures at the tail end of Beast Hunters, without any articulation improvements at all. I may not like ER Starscream personally, but it at least improved on the older Classics design. If pic related had any sort of basic articulation like Elbows or knees, it wouldn't be so bad, maybe a good base for an RiD Filch custom or something, but instead its a stiff plastic pile of sadness and disappointment. Even the worst of POTP, the worst line in the last few years, is still better than this
>Mom says it's my turn on the Xbox
>>9182988>those armsLanky 'Cron
>>9182857That was limited in the Europe/UK at different price points. I know because I actually wanted some those but they were too costly due to shipping and how limited they were. They are really rare to show the lack of manufacturingRandom note this is why people shouldn't mock others length in the "fandom" because there is always something to learn.
>>9182713The Premium Finish line reminds me of Movie The Best, another Takara exclusive subline of repainted molds after they were avaliable for years, hope it sells better.
>>9182758>Beast Wars is finally getting recognitionYou say that like they don’t keep getting attention. Longest spell was between 07 to 2011
>>9182820>DOTM-era movie toysDeluxe Starscream rocks, at least.
>>9183048I'm not sure what's going on here. You stated "Beast Wars is finally getting recognition" and I simply answered they have for decades now.
>>9183054Tell me how many beast wars figures (excluding repaints) were made from 2005 to 2018, and then tell me how many beast wars figures were in kingdom.
>>9183055who cares, hasbro wanted to do something else with the franchise instead of pandering to dumb boomers
>>9183048Counting the anniversary stuff, Thrilling 30, the Takara repaints we hit at least 35 figures, but the point was more Hasbro has never swept them under the rug like say Action Masters or Pretenders. They always get mentioned and made
>>9183056I was not trying to say Beast Wars is bad, I was trying to say Beast Wars was not getting the recognition it deserved.
>>9183055But what does that have to do with "Beast Wars is finally getting recognition"?I'm not who ever you are fighting with over quality/peak era stuff. Take a breather.
>>9183058>takara repaintsThat was the one fucking thing I told you to exclude.
>>9183059>it deserved>goal post moving Oh. It's you. Way to make your own argument even more subjective. You must be a fun guy to hang with irl.
>>9183063Well we can't look over the now deleted post. Shouldn't have deleted it.
>>9183063Not in that post lol. That's why you deleted it. >>9183068Nah don't listen to him, he changed the rules because he fuck up? "What did he fuck up" you ask? Nothing. He is looking at everything as a fight that he needs to win on a internet board anything that in his silly little mind that makes him look stupid is a threat.
When is the hasbro convention thingy?
>>9183070And no one is didn't replying to that. Also we can look up deleted posts. This is some weird damage control for such a nonissue topic, you must have nothing going on.
>>9183027I knew it was some sort of European exclusive, didn't know about the different price points though. I was mostly bringing it up as a pretty extreme example that, no matter how much you may like or dislike the current state of TF, we're still far beyond the worst the brand has been compared to the likes of FOC or the AOE toylines. Even then though, there's still a few gems that shine through in the worst lines.>Random note this is why people shouldn't mock others length in the "fandom" because there is always something to learn.That's a big part of what draws me to TF, there really is a shitload of weird or obscure stuff out there. I keep stumbling on obscure repaints or licensed figures, like those Sports Label figures or the Bearbricks. I really need to track down some of those. My non-TF fan frens always get a kick when I show them some of the goofier stuff I find
>>9183037Fine I guess what I meant as recognition was making new molds for the at least a third of the season 1 cast as recognition, as opposed to reissues, Optimus Primals and Megatrons, and five actual new molds of other characters from season 1.
>>9183075Fall. Fairly vague.
>>9182771>Its not my job to educate you!ok
>>9183078>I was mostly bringing it up as a pretty extreme example that, no matter how much you may like or dislike the current state of TF, we're still far beyond the worst the brand has been compared to the likes of FOC or the AOE toylines. It gets all subjective really fast however. Case in point, I can draw from much more massively produced shit that was over priced and cheaply made Transformers from 2014 onward. Other subjective issue can be on amount of product produced, amount quality control issues in the line, or even just the gimmicks. It's fine to enjoy what you like but let's not get too passionate into this kind of shit.
>>9182479Why would you do this? What could have possibly possessed them to not just have 8 more parts on a product with no MSRP?
>>9183085How can you ignore all those beautiful MPs?
>>9183090Things are getting unstable anon. we are going to see global food cost spikes in the fall that are guaranteed to hit past 10%, that kind of shit is going to trash luxury markets like toys.
>>9183092That's an amazing point, but I was mainly talking about mainline. Me changing what I meant and forgetting the Beast MPs, are making me look like an absolute bufoon.
>>9183089>I can draw from much more massively produced shit that was over priced and cheaply made Transformers from 2014 onward.Please do
>>9183099Well there was those pull back sparkers I showed a pic of, one step changers thatcame out at that time as well, including a very over priced 12 inch BumblebeePower Battle (formally Fast Action) figures that clogged stores for years Flip/smash and change Should be worth noting the normal ran line of AoE was very limited compared to others with a lot of exclusives, some of which were over in Japan. Oh and Walmart had a reused BW mold for Strafe that came with a Legion Class BB and charged $20 for the set. 2014 was a really weird time for the brand
>>9183105And as a side note they also had those Construct Bots not Bionicle things as well as some of the laziest ways to upcharge Kreons
>>9183108Cubstruct-Bots were one of the funniest lines I've ever seen. From day one everyone knew it was a failure, like watching a car crash in slow motion
Kingdom Red Alert has arrived.
>>9183123Car mode is slightly bigger than siege. Looks really cool.
>>9183123Damn, I wish he start showing up sooner here in burgerland.
Are the Fossilzers worth it? Ractonite and Wingfinger look pretty neat, and their price points aren't too bad for deluxe class.
>>9183128Transformation is the same. Red Alert uses nice white plastic, red with some paint for abs, head, sheens.
>>9183132I've got mine from online retailer in Poland.>>9183134Still I prefer siege version more and I have no need to get more of this mold.
What happened to the anon who did the reviews? Or was that just Kreon?
>>9183133I enjoy them but like all izers you are getting a parts former so how much you enjoy mashing over transformation will greatly effect how much you'll like them.
>>9183133Yes, I only have Ractonite but I will get rest of them.>>9183138And that's it with Red Alert good mold but if you have siege one then skip him.
>>9183089How about a more fair comparison: FOC, Generations, same as WFC trilogy(I really hate that they reused the name, makes talking about it so much more confusing than it needs to be). I'd say that objectively just about anything from that line would be worse than modern figures in terms of design, articulation, and build quality. It just wasn't a good time for the brand. There was still good stuff though, I like a lot of figures from that general era, but FOC leading up to AOE had a lot of crap>pic related, I kinda like FOC Shockwave but he isn't very good
>>9183146Not to say WFC has been perfect, ER really didn't click with me and had a lot of patterns that bug the shit out of me. And I think ERcee might be one of the worst transformers ever made. Still had a few good figures though. Like you said, taste is really subjective, and different people value different things in a toy. I'm just trying to say, things could be and have been worse. I mean Transformers almost fucking died in the 90s.Am I getting too passionate? Sorry if it seems like it. I just kinda like talking about toys and don't know how to summarize. The point I was trying to put across is that I think things could always be worse, and there can be some sort of value extracted even from some of those worse areas. although I might have not gotten that across very well. I try not to take stuff too seriously, everyone likes different stuff and I try to understand why someone might like or dislike something I don't>>9183105>>9183108I kinda miss some of the off the wall stuff Hasbro was trying out of desperation back then even if a lot of it was not very good. Still want to get those Terrorsaur and fucking Guiledart redecos that appeared out of nowhere
>>9183139He still posts, not that much but he does.
What's the worst transformer toy ever made?
>>9183146>How about a more fair comparisonI was just going off the bar >>9182857 set. That said, I still think it's fair for how awful the engineering was with the Dinobots and other figures of AoE, and even the few good ones had a lot to be desired which was why a lot of fans got excited for the Studio line to actually get AoE figures that were not awful. >There was still good stuff thoughYes but that can be said about any line which is where this gets messy.
>>9183159What's the bar? In terms of sales, these fuckers were the worse
>>9183147I got the guiledart repaint a few weeks ago, it's pretty good
>>9183147It was great having old molds randomly being produced agian in wacky ass colors,it was like universe 1 was showing up to say hi.I snatched those up with a quickness.
>>9183161No, I mean BM Nightscream and Prime Airachnid bad.
I'm fighting myself with the idea of getting SS Grindor so I pulled Blackout from the shelf to see if I like this mold enough.
>>9183166Him or Armada Sideswipe hands down.
>>9183170keep in mind grindor has better hands.
New threads:CHUG General:>>9183177MP General:>>9183150
>>9183176Got pics? Ive been out of the loop
>>9183170Back rotors are stiff and rather hard to put them into cape. And those set hand are bullshit, good that I have DNA upgrade kit. Scorponok is nice but slightly too small, I have the same problem with new Ravage, maybe it's better to hunt old legends one on the internet.
>>9183176True and I like the mold for them more than the kit, still they pose way better. >>9183182Every time I pull SS bots from shelf I remember their fight from the old movie game.Two heavy hitters against each other, even Optimus fight was easier than with Ironhide.
>>9183160Yeah even the good ones are only just barely, it would be nice to see the Dinobots get a better shot in SS but I'd miss the garish colors>Yes but that can be said about any line which is where this gets messy.It is kind of a useless thing to say, but I try and give everything a fair chance even if it doesn;t really deserve it. being a bit less nice, FOC and AOE are objectively awful lines and even some of their best figures don't even compare to the most mediocre molds that came after.>>9183162It's like a weird not-Killerpunch, and I'm totally down. I'd like to get some of the JP Beast Wars guys some day too>>9183163>Universe 1Exactly what it reminds me of, I love that shit
>>9183185Blackout can pose well if you give him time, shame they botched his shoulder tabs, oh well free buterfly joint.
>>9183189It was so stupid in that game with throwing enemies but it was also pretty fun to launch autobots into the buildings.
>>9183170I think Blackout looks cool, and missed out on SS. Grindor is just Blackout with good hands, so it's a pretty easy choice for me. If you already have Blackout though I can see why it wouldn't feel worth it, especially with the upgrade kitI really hope more SS figures get redone or reissued since I missed out a lot from the earlier waves, and they feel fucking impossible to find anymore for non-retarded prices
>>9183195That's it with the pic spam. It will commence with full strenght next week when I will get Rodimus. I like this mold, it mogs other bots when posing together and I enjoy Grindor from the second game, how he shited on Starscream as a leader etc. I still feel it will come to getting better Ravage.
>>9183163>UniverseI really wish a Universe like line had enough demand to exist. All the old molds that would be fun to get in other characters just lost to time.
>>9183200I agree, we could get better Lockdown and others., Deep Desert Brawl, Bonecrusher drone with pistols but looking at the leaks what we get is still good.
>>9183139I'm still around.I've just been busier and the uptick in bickering has made threads more unfun to post in.Also pic related is *not* a toy that will put the wind back in your sails.
>>9183185>>9183189>>9183195>>9183209Pics are fun anon>IronhideJealouse, adding to what I said, I keep forgetting he exists because I literally never saw him in store or even on Amazon, guess I just blinked or something. he really needs a rerelease or a redeco or something.Please take many fun pics of Rodimus. probably my most anticipated upcoming figure, also jealous>>9183219I'd just take rereleases of the toys I missed but redecos and redos would be appreciated. Some of the toy only decos would be a lot of fun, like pic relatedYeah the stuff we're getting still looks kinda fun, Jolt looks shockingly(heh) decent for a guy who appeared for like one second in the background of the (arguably)worst movie. Like, he has a big backpack but it has a kind of interesting shape to it, and his grabby claw hands are fun. Reminds me more of Skids than the actual movieverse Skids. They did Skids dirty in that fucking movie
>shittpooster anon is so desperate for his new generals to survive for (You)s he's just same fagging himself I'm proud of you fuckers
Can we just report the guy making the new threads? He’s making us look like cunts
>>9183275Yes and you should, though don't expect faggot mods to notice or care. OP is a faggot and will never stop being a faggot.
So ERcee seems to be pretty universally dislikedAre there any good Arcee toys with the G1 design? I don't need it to be totally Sunbow accurate, but I like the pink and her turning into a car
>>9183254>>9183202>>9183257Nah we haven't actually seen Blaster or Tigatron yet
>>9183275Yes, the category is spamming/flooding. Especially since there are two new threads on the front page.
>>9183270The meltdown is glorious>>9183275Yes you can and we all should, but it's just as import to hide the threads and keep going as usual. >>9183282And that's why it's important to leave him to his samfag VPN tier posting, even if he keeps it up he's just fucking his mental health over.
>>9183290Three now, plus two half-used ones on autosage slowly working their way towards page ten. Plus this one. It's a right fucking mess and OP knows exactly what he's doing.
>>9183209Got grindor. Ravage isn't much, but he can at least pose a little bit. All 4 legs are on ball joint and tail/back guns are on a hinge, so he at least isn't a total brick
>>9183289Thanks, wasn't sure what if anything I'd missed seeing. Blaster is a definite buy for me, I loved messing with the G1 toy as a kid and haven't seen him for years, it'll be nice to have him back on my shelf in some form.
>>9183301Only annoying part is if you want all of the cassettes, we'll have to get rewind with twincast
>>9183294>OP knows exactly what he's doing.wasting his time? No skin in the game for us, we can keep taking robots
>>9183310Fucking jews. I'll just keep my busted TR one instead, I don't need a twincast.
>>9183288the T30 mold is pretty alright, flawed but you can tell the designer put genuine care into the design considering he did the first draft 16 years prior. There's a reason that pretty much became the basis for all future geewunn arcee transformations in the 3p scene. Outside of that there's also the MP for official stuff. Not a lot of choices really
>>9183314But you need a Twincast to go with Soundblaster, and Soundblaster's fucking awesome.
>>9183288The T30/LG release (LG is more show accurate), MMC Azalea, or the MP if you have more money than sense.
>>9183256I've got Ironhide from online geek shop, it was weird that they had him. Still same shop has Volk Bee from SS. Sometimes distribution in Poland is blessing and a curse.>Please take many fun pics of Rodimus. probably my most anticipated upcoming figure, also jealousWill do, I need to rewach Dio vs Jotaro for ideas.Jolt is good lookind but I need to hunt Dino first. With them, Que and rotf Sideswipe I will be satisfied with 1-3 bots. Then only 4 bots from 4-5 and that part of collecting SS is closed for Autobots.
>>9183300Thanks, I don't need two same molds but that Ravage is what makes me consider getting him.
>>9183338always enjoy outdoor toy photos, good work
>>9183338What a pretty picture!>>9183288>any good Arcee toys with the G1 designMay as well ask what Arcee toys even exist. T30/Takara, Cyberverse, the TR/Blurr one... that's about it I think. Some still prefer the T30 mold because it has a less unwieldy backpack.>>9183233Hope your tasks are going well!
When are they going to do Soundblaster from the Netflix version?
>>9183330I'm good with just Blaster and Soundwave, I have no use for their recolors desu. More Soundblaster/Twincast for the rest of you anons, I'm sure they'll make for some good pics.
>>9183351Not soon enough, we need a fucking buzz-saw.
>>9183334weird, definitely seems like some strange luck.>Will do, I need to rewach Dio vs Jotaro for ideas.First thought I had seeing that Rodimus could point was Jotaro poses, I'll look forward to themDino's level of kibble compression in the torso is legit impressive but also really scary, I dunno if want. maybe an impulse purchase. Sideswipe is another one I'm pissed I missed, he seemed like a pretty cool figure. Glad the retool is coming but its gonna have a more cumbersome backpack which is a little unfortunate. Hope you can assemble the full team anon
>>9183275The guy trying to get gogogo anon banned by making fake new threads, yes, he can be reported for spamming/floodingBut making a new thread after the old one hits the bump limit, no, that's how it's supposed to work so nothing can be done
OP really thought that'd work?Lmao
>>9183288I actually preter ER Arcee. They both have awful backpacks but ER Arcee has the option to remove most of hers.That being said, T30 has better paint since it adds Black to the color scheme that helps to break up the pink and white, and T30 has better weapons.
he also got the box this time
>>9183407It's not OPThe guy starting the new threads is trying to kill /tfg/He's slow-mo anon
>>9183418How is the Cheetor mold? I wasn't interested enough to get him but I loved the original Tigatron I had as a kid and am thinking about getting this new one.>mfw OP still trying
>>9183418I'm shitting myself right now kek>Hasbro had all those occasions to show figs but they are beaten by them every timeI love seing this chaos.
>>9183435Not the same mold.Tigatron was bumped to voyager when Polar Claw was crossed.Cheetor is okay, feet are to small, neck peg in beast mode will snap but I do like him.
>>9183435Tigatron is bigger therefore it's not 1/1 cheetos remold. am i right tfg? The mold itself is a bit splindy but let's see if it feel thiccer in voyager class
>>9183444>>9183446Oh damn I'd just assumed Tigatron was a straight repaint, now I'm even more curious to see him.
>>9183422>He's slow-mo anonThere is no single "slow-mo anon".
>>9183456Shadow Panther is a straight repaint BUT with mutant head (same wave 4 as Tigatron).
>>9183446Not a remold, but it most likely uses the same engineering.
>>9183458And there's no single goanon either.
>I read those reviews on Kingdom by netshit Oh boy I look forward to threads with shitposting about it.
>>9183458Don't reply to his desperate pleas for attention, anon.>>9183461Even as a kid watching BW I always thought that cat head on a humanoid body looked stupid as hell. Cool to bring Ravage back for an episode but damn he looked stupid.
>>9183418So is Hasbro ever going to do toy reveals again? I can't even remember the last TF FFF. Seems like leakers are our only source of news these days and Hasbro has just given up.
>>9183500I hope so, I don't follow leakers or use twitter and all that. I only get my information from /tfg/.
>>9183500Hasbro was first in showing Kingdom wave 3 (except for Galvatron). Though tey only seem to do it anymore if their hand is forced (that is if enough big things get leaked).
>>9183418Why do all the people with stolen copies have to tease?
>>9183508They crave attention, nothing more.
>>9183508They are attention whores.Get adblock and leave a dislike under them.
>>9183500The world economy is in serious chaos right now where even the top analysts have no clue how this inflation is going to go, as such a lot of companies are uncertain on how to go forward, more so with shortages.
what's going on with the threads? I don't understand anymore
>>9183524a small dick fatty is just reeeibf into the nothingness, stick here till we reach page 8
>>9183536sucks that everyone split between the many TFG threads
>>9183435>>9183446Probably not as different as MP Cheetor and Tigatron, though that would be a treat.I'm thinking closer to Classics vs ER Starscream. >>9183500I think the last new thing we were shown instead of leaked was SS86 Gnaw and Wreck-Gar
>>9183524A career shitposter made them his target.
>>9183542Wreck-gar was leaked right before he was announced.
>>9183539Yeah it's extremely shitty, worse since OP seems to get off on this faggotry. Mods are no help at all it seems.
>>9183418>doesn't show the actual toyI knew he was a microdicked faggot but Jesus.
>>9183546Oh well, Mods will do nothing I'm sure.. any of the new shit you excited for? I don't care for Shattered glass at all but that Jetfire looks nice and I don't got the original, Rodimus too but that price is eh
>>9183556That's because Jetfire isn't actually SG, he's Dark Skyfire.
>>9183556Just Tigatron mostly. And TM2 Dragon Megatron if it happens.
>>9183549Pics or listings?I don't keep track of listings.
>>9183593Listings always get leaked many months before announcements, I was talking about pics.
>>9183593Listing first, then physical pics shortly before the FFFkyw52
>>9183556Blaster I guess. I don't even know what's coming out these days, I miss when anon would put a bunch of relevant info in the OP or first post.
>>9183556im up for any BW. all the kingdom ive bought so far been really solid
>me Grimlock am Grimnok now, $200 please
>>9183571>TM2 Dragon Megatronoh that looks kinda cool, hope they make you a toy>>9183569I'm usually a fan of the Mirror Universe asthetic but SG ones are just eh to me, the black on jetfire looks nice just wish there was more green and no purple
>>9183600Sadly the faggot making these threads doesn't give a shit.
>>91836092023 hasbro leak confirm>commander grimnok 200$ (5 inch)
>>9183609Speaking of Grimlock, should I do his teeth in silver?
>>9183603I'm not even a big fan of beast wars but I got Megatron and Primal both really nice. I bought primal just because I still think an Ape transformer is funny, not one of those G1 guys reeeing I just mean.. c'mon its a robot that turns into an ape
>>9183616What if Hasbro came up with weaponizers/fossilizers just to steal the community's designs and sell them?
>>9183650hey now this is hasbro, they wont be as scummy as lego
Has anyone had the peghole section for SS86 slags side frills break? Found it after taking it out of the package
if all I have is skrewdrivers can I fix Galvatrons shoulders? II pry and nothing moves, note these things I got kinda suck dick
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qNyM-Kr8HQHere is your upsized Cheetor bro
>>9183683You can but you risk damaging plastic.>II pry and nothing movesYou have to do it gently, push from one side, then he other, it took me 20 minutes to do 1.
>>9183696all because hasbro is a fucking retarded
>>9183691>>9183695why the intentional yellowing there? real albino lion don't have that
>>9183710Yeah at first I thought it was already yellowing but they painted it like that. Oh and hey, he has the gut gun.It looks pretty good actually, looking at that comparison with the MP in bot mode he's quite accurate. I don't like the paws in Tiger mode though, Tigers have bigger paws than that.
>>9183710White tigers/polar bears/literally any purely white animal that hangs out in wild enviroment often have a certain dirty dusty tint at the end of their fur, due to naturally dirtying themselves up.
>>9183695I don't really give a shit about beast wars but tigatron looks kinda cool.. except that fucking yellowing, pass
>>9183720the entire limbs looks too skinny, tiger limbs are supposed to be lumpy muscly
>>9183724Since Kingdom has been leaning toward slightly more realistic beast modes an off-white colour makes sense.
>>9183724>>9183725>>9183732i guess when the plastic yellowing kicks in it'll look even better
>>9183418Botmode looks pretty good.
Cat mode, ehh, head looks weird.
>>9183741I'd say the torso looks a little too wide on Tigatron, but I guess that's due to the design of the transformation.
>>9183730Yeah I think you're right, all legs should be beefier.
>>9183710I wonder what this person was actually thinking of when they wrote that
>>9183741Okay that's not as bad as >>9183730 >>9183720 had me fearing, but yeah needs to be beefier
>>9183768He is probably danish. The BW Danish dub had to rename Tigatron "Liontron" because tigers don't exist in danish folklore.
>>9183771But if he were beefy wouldn't the legs stick out too much when crossed behind his back?
>>9183739I feel like he's too tall, but...nope, he's not
>>9183778But they... still exist in the real world? Is there something I'm not getting here
>>9183787>>9183739Should Rattrap have been a small deluxe like Cliffjumper
>>9183787It's surprisingly rare to see all the beast wars cast together for scale shots. Don't know if that was just happenstance or the super toasters could take it
>>9183195Do you mean the DS game?
>>9183780I imagine it's more that the hind legs had to still fit in his robot shins so they couldn't make them much wider.
>>9183780well if im the designer i'll just leave it hanging vertically, but keep the tab for people who wants it crossed
>>9183794From what I have calculated myself, Rattrap's size is more or less fine, the real problem is that they made Blackarachnia fucking huge, she should've been only a little bit taller than Rattrap. But like, Terrorsaur will be a Airrazor retool, so Predacons will have bad scale too
>>9183473They won't believe it, "he's" a boogie man now.
>>9183741I was a few years too young for actual Beast Wars toys, but these guys really appeal to nostalgia to the various animal toys I had as a little kid with texture molded into them. Especially the lightly articulated set of father, mother, and child of various zoo animals like gorilla, elephant, lion, and tiger. Poison Dart Frog and Crocodile when?
>>9183797No the PC/Xbox/ps game.Although that DS game was based and Rookie deserve a toy.
>>9183808Rattrap is only a lil smaller then cheetor.
>>9183833You could have a whole shelf of Rookies
>>9183808>>9183834You're both right. Rattrap should've been a small Deluxe, but Blackarachnia -is- too fucking big. Both of them are the ones fucking the scale.
>>9183861I honestly prefer Rattrap's Core-size than if he were a deluxe. I know it's not show-accurate but it does feel "right" to have a rat character be smaller.A Transmetal Rattrap though? Better be Deluxe. Core would be too small to ride for Dinobot.
>>9183861Scale is a funny thing. Like the size of the characters in the show and in the original toys were way different (Scorponok and TMII probably being the biggest examples being Mega-class in toys but tiny in the show).
>>9183609Did grimlocks price really inflate up to 20p bucks?
since we are getting into that topic
>>9183739>>9183741Looks pretty good.Kinda funny how he is kinda like cheetor but upscaled, didn't think they'd do that but hey.
>>9183964Better in a number of ways though. The cat legs are hidden better in the robot shins, and the robot torso looks more coherent and better proportioned.
>>9183990Tigatron has 'more to work with' since Tigers are thicker than Cheetas and also hes voyager and not Deluxe
How much was Tformers paid to say this?
Why do I want the kingdom spoiler pack
>>9183916>Terrorsaur and Inferno would have to be Voyagers to approach proper scaleDamn. I hadn’t realized til now just how much the Airrazor remold/reshell would fuck our one season wonder.>>9183964I mean his original toy and character model was a repaint and the Masterpiece borrowed a lot of engineering from MP Cheetor. It’d be stranger if he WASN’T an upscaled deluxe with extra engineering due to size class and differences between tigers and cheetahs.
>>9184009>Masterpiece borrowed a lot of engineering from MP Cheetor.I'm struggling to think of any shared engineering between the two. Can't be more than a few shared, robot mode only, parts.
>>9183990Oh absolutely, I just find it a bit funny because the cheap way would've been just repaint deluxe cheetor and do minor remolding.>>9184009idunno, I could see them trying to get away with just repainting cheetor since Tigatron is a late wave figure.
>>9183916>what have you brought upon this thread
>>9184030>I just find it a bit funny because the cheap way would've been just repaint deluxe cheetor and do minor remolding.True, and even the upscaled parts would require new molds.
>>9184003We give shit tfw but they said in diplomatic way that it is shit.
>>9184003>>9184060My favorite in history will always be how Seibertron was anti-Bay movie at every step of the way (to the point they changed the redirect of their main page to a MEGATRON LOOKS LIKE THIS, BAY gallery), and then after Hasbro send them promo merch suddenly they changed their tune.https://www.seibertron.com/infozone/transformers101.phpNever forget
>>9184090Those Seibertron faggots are just a bunch of insufferable boomers, I think some are still Trukk not Munky.I'll never forget when they kissed Hasbro's ass so hard they stopped posting 3p in the main page.
I told myself I would not buy two of the same mold>Own G2 Megatron>Own paleotrexbut want this. Dunno something about the matrix on straps is cool to me
>>9184107They post Third Party on the main page, they just don't post the bootleg shit.
>>9184130>I told myself I would not buy two of the same mold>but I want thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuhgHzuPYiI
>>9184135Licensed by Hasbro, so it's still kissing Hasbro's ass.
>>9184141you have a point, I should not do it
>>9184003It's still interesting to me that they chose to do such a size difference between Optimus and Megatron.I think the only other show to have such a large discrepancy was Animated, but Optimus and Megatron only fought like three time in that.
>>9183833I cry every time >It's been a long day without you, my friend>And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again>We've come a long way from where we began>Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you againWhen I see you again >It's been a long day without you, my friend
>>9184149Yeah, that's what a Third Party toy is. Not some guys in China selling Red Truck Freedom Warrior.
>>9184183t. Seibertron member
I hope they make a green versionI like green :)
Sdcc is this weekend right? I wonder if that's where kingdom wave 4 will get revealed
>>9184382Sounds like a reasonably safe bet to me.
>>9184382I want some artworks for the next movie, but wave 4 will be most likely shown.
>>9183691Who else is in wave 4?
>>9184625Pipes, Slammer, Shadow Panther, Waspinator, and possibly Blaster.
>>9183435Got a mushroom peg on the Cheetor robot arm that's a little loose. Arm keeps popping off. Not sure if QC or just mine.
>>9184090The bay movies and all associated designs are objectively horrible though
>>9184862I think some of them work well in relatively simplified toy form, but the closest Megatron ever got was maybe the DotM Voyager, which I don't think the SS Leader lived up to at all.
>>9184862I kinda like Shockwave, but other than that you're right.
>>9184878I think it's kinda funny that the only character that looked okay was the character whose face they could not fuck up
>>9183500Leakers (the ones from ytb) never reveals the Gen Selects stuff...
>>9183500Why does hasblow even pretend that they need to do exclusive surprise reveals? Nobody who would be watching for the reveals isnt also seeing leaks.
>>9183861Go to hell you actual fucking retard, the height discrepancy between Rattrap/Blackarachnia and Cheetor is at most a head. Learn the scale.
>>9184881Unless they gave it a face.
>>9184881They gave him a vagina dentata mouth
>>9185063Just looks like general arthropod mouthparts to me.
>>9185075Because that's how we like our Shockwaves.
>>9185099I don't mind it, to be honest. I dislike how hard the Decepticon designs hit the same beats over and over again, but in general my issue is just how clusterfucky the designs are. I actually like how movie Starscream looks as a figure in some cases, like the DotM deluxe, but only because the shrapnel aesthetic is tossed out and the whole thing is far easier to make sense of.
>>9185118I wonder how bad the ROTB designs will be.
>>9185135I think the Autobots and Decepticons will look fine; I can't imagine them straying too far from Bumblebee. It's how the beastformers could turn out that's worrying. There's good creepy and bad creepy.
>>9185191Terrorcon Scourge from the description of how he looks sounded like a prime Baycon to me, I'm worried.
>>9185063>vagina dentataWhat a wonderful phrase!
>>9185063More insect like, still one of the better designs for movie cons.>tfw BayChad
